Really important cartooning: Threads by Cartoon Kate


I’ll post the last of my daughter’s daily outfit drawings at the end of the month – might as well bundle in the last two days with week 4.

Meanwhile, there’s nothing that makes little fashion sketches look so inconsequential as a cartoon doing something really powerful, political and potentially game-changing. 

This week my friend Kate shared her story of going out to the Calais “jungle” to help refugees there: Threads

As so often, it’s the small observed details that make it so hard-hitting: the stepped-down shoes, the child complaining that they are not tired: everyday minutiae that make the extraordinary circumstances they are seen within all the more shocking. Beware, you may cry. But you will also come away with more understanding. Brava, Kate.
